What is Simple Syrup?
Simple syrup is a liquid sweetener made by dissolving sugar in water, usually at a 1:1 ratio. Dissolving the sugar in liquid makes it much easier to mix into tea or anything else that needs a kick of sweetness! It is especially wonderful in cold brew tea. Since cold brew tea is brewed in cold filtered water then honey, granulated sugar, and other more viscous or solid sweeteners often don’t dissolve the way we’d like. So, bring on that simply sweet syrup!
To use simple syrup in your tea, just add a teaspoon or two per cup – or better yet, sweeten to your mother*ckin’ taste! Make your tea work for you!
